  1. I’ve had anxiety and OCD tendencies since childhood. Rapid heartbeat, racing thoughts, irritability. I happened to have a friend at work who’s dad has celiac. She suggested gluten free and once I committed, I felt immediately better. All the symptoms were magically gone and I just couldn’t belie...
  2. I’m in a very similar situation. My doctor made me feel stupid and said “if you feel better, don’t eat it” and so I never pushed for testing. It’s been 2 years now, and I’d like to be tested because I’d like to know if I’m damaging my body with cross contamination or a hidden gluten source. It’s ...
  3. Hi:) I went gluten free over a year ago after I had many celiac symptoms. I feel amazing and decided not to get tested, but I’m rethinking that now. My thinking now is that I’d like to be able to know I’m not causing any damage and not knowing. I’d like to know I’m healthy for sure, and that I’m ...
  4. I Believe they are saying they experience these symptoms when exposed to gluten. I agree with seeking help and would never dissuade anyone from doing so.
  5. You aren’t alone, I’ve had a huge difference in anxiety and depression since going gluten free, and have since met others like me. https://www.everydayhealth.com/columns/therese-borchard-sanity-break/gluten-depression-and-anxiety-gut-brain-link/
  6. I have not been diagnosed celiac, but I can tell you that after going gluten free 8 months ago, my panic attacks have diminished about 80%. I have psoriasis and haven't had an outbreak since. You have to keep eating gluten in order to be tested so keep that in mind. Good luck, you are definitely...
  7. I have had them for 20 years. I tried gluten free as a last resort and after a week I noticed a huge change. No more constant rapid ❤ beat was the first thing. I've been getting better and better over the last 6 months, and feel like this was such a miracle. Let me ask you, do you have any other s...
  8. Magnesium really helped with my anxiety issues. I never get a full fledged panic attack since going gluten-free 7 months ago. I still get uneasy at times, and magnesium does wonders.
  9. I've never been diagnosed with DH, but get a rash that feels like burning match heads in the bottoms of my feet that lasts for weeks. I found applying apple cider vinegar to the area helps, and I second the benzocaine too.
  10. Your story is so similar to mine, except my doctor won't test me for Celiac. I have had bad psoriasis for years and paralyzing anxiety. I've been off gluten for 6 months and haven't had a single issue with my skin and anxiety is down about 80%. Sorry I have no answers, but I wanted you to know...
  11. Thank you all so much. It's so great to know there are people out there that have shared my experience. I was feeling quite alone in this. I could never believe that I just had anxiety, and that was that. There has to be a reason for my body to act this way. I feel validated,and hopeful and that...
  12. Hi, new here and this is my first post so please be kind. I'm wondering if anyone has suffered anxiety and panic attacks? I have struggled since childhood and recently decided to go gluten free to see if that helped. It was an amazing difference almost right away! Within days my severe anxiety had...
